Sucks to be on the other side of the world to most of you.
Nothing exciting to report really, since im not officially weighing again till 1/3

Primal since March 5, 2012
SW: 221 | CW: 182 | LPW: 166 | UGW: 140 (80 lbs loss)
I'm at 211, and like I said, both sites are giving me roughly the same number to lose 2 lbs/week. (that's as high as it will go as well, weightloss/week)
Anyone drinking any wine doing this way of eating and losing weight? I really want red wine with my beef....LOL
For me-- TSH must be ignored and Free T4 and Free T3 need to be above midrange of their respective ranges. In fact I feel best when they are at about 75%.
With respect to carbs, again for me, going VLC for very long makes my FT3 drop to barely in range. I found myself with low T3 and symptomatic in October when things were tested. Because of that, I experimented and ate a great deal more carbs (didn't track) from the end of October until January. On January 7 I had my frees retested and my T3 was back up where I feel best. This told me I need more carbs in my diet in order for thyroid hormone conversion to work properly.
Do you have test results for freeT4 and freeT3? How is your vitamin D, ferritin, blood sugar?
